Thread: Where to buy ada amazonia

    Default Where to buy ada amazonia

    I used to buy it off the ada online shop, I think it was called Agashop or adashop but it doesn't exist anymore. I am trying to buy it again but I only see it on amazon and other various sites but its so expensive, I don't remember paying 50$ for a 9L bag of this. Where do you all buy this at? or is there another replicate substrate that also has the same side effects? such as lowering the ph of the water and making it softer. I need this for my CRS shrimps.

    or aqualex black soil from Eric (discobee.com ) but I think he is currently out. ADA soil is going to be 50-65 dollars any where plus shipping. I heard the fluval shrimp substrate is pretty decent but never used it.

    controsoil, sl-aqua, Dennerle shrimp king active soil, tropica aquarium soil, fluval shrimp substrate will all lower the ph etc. You have to use these as well as ada substrates with RO water otherwise they will exhaust pretty quickly if you use tap water.

    Any of these made of hardened clay similar to ADA soil? any experience with any of these substrates?

    I have used controsoil & sl-aqua. sl-aqua does not leach ammonia like ada does. I do not have experience with ada soil though. no idea what they are made of.
